When to use SOS

SOS can be used to hydrate and replenish no matter the conditions


If you’re working hard then replacing electrolytes is important. Electrolytes are what make sweat salty; if you lose too many your neural system won’t function properly. This can lead to problems with your heart, blood pressure and breathing. 

Drink about 500mL of water with 1 or 2 sachets/scoops of SOS for optimal hydration and balance of electrolytes for recovery.

Daily Use & At Work

While asleep we can lose over 1kg (2.2lbs) of water-weight through respiration and sweating, so SOS in a glass of water will help kick-start your morning. 

Dehydration is the number one cause of daytime fatigue. Adding SOS to your water throughout the day will combat the drying effects of air-conditioning and makes it easier to get in your 8-cups of water! 

Air Travel

The humidity on a commercial airliner is between 10-20 percent. Breathing in dry air makes the throat less effective at expelling viruses and bacteria which can make you more susceptible to infection. Drink a minimum of 250mL/8 ounces of water with SOS for every hour that you’re in the air. It can also to be beneficial to ‘pre-hydrate’ in the days leading up to a big flight to ensure that your body is prepared for the stress of flying.


Ever wondered why the headache and dry-mouth from being dehydrated feels a bit like being hungover? Alcohol is diuretic, which makes dehydration one of the contributors to a hangover. 

SOS in a glass of water next to the bed for first thing in the morning will absorb rapidly to replace the electrolytes lost from increased urine production and help with a dry-mouth.

Sickness, Viral & GI related support

Never the fun one to talk about, but SOS and its high concentration of electrolytes and zinc play a key part in recovery from illness and maintenance of electrolyte balance for those with gastrointestinal conditions.Diarrhea & vomiting and fever from viral infections dehydrate. To help speed recovery, frequently taking an SOS helps you hydrate and as such get back to being well.  Remember SOS is safe for the whole family.  SOS also plays an important role for those needing increased electrolytes throughout their day.  Conditions such as Gastroenteritis, short bowl syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD & IBS), Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis and POTS disease would all benefit from SOS
